Motorcycling in the Finger Lakes
The Finger Lakes is a great place to bike with open roads, rolling hills, and long views of the lakes. Although it's not safe to bike in the Finger Lakes during the winter, spring and summer are warm but not too often hot with plenty of sunny days. Fall is cool with the hillsides a tapestry of oranges, reds, greens, and yellows.
You'll find a wide variety of bikes in the Finger Lakes--BMWs, Yamahas, Kawasakis, and, of course, Harleys, where there are six dealers and three HOGs. Enjoy your ride.
